What? You Want a Dairy Goat?

  • Texas Fresh Harvest Farm 475 Lake Foreset Road Pipe Creek, TX, 78063 United States (map)

The popularity of having your own dairy goat continues to be a strong trend. The secret is out that these animals are so multi-purpose commodities. Awesome pets! Great yet simple milk producers! Youth responsibility trainers! Healthy meat sources! I could go on but I’ll save it for the class.

This Saturday class will give you the basics of:

-Help you determine “why” you want a dairy goat -Learn about the various “types” of dairy goats pro’s/con’s - What are the absolute “essentials” for caring for a dairy goat - Feeding and daily care - Milking!! (yes actual milking session with “hands-on” for both manual and with a milker machine) - How to safely “handle” your milk so it is safe for human consumption. Diary goat health concerns - and so much more….

-Bring a “hearty” lunch and munchies as you will be in both classroom and the barn working with the goats in this class. We will provide water and sweet tea. Comfortable “working” clothes that can get “dirty”. Closed solid shoes.

Cost is $100/person. Guaranteed you will learn several valuable lessons to “avoid” way more costly mistakes than the cost of this class!
